Winning an NSF CAREER Award: An Interactive Workshop with NSF CAREER Program Officials and UMass CAREER Recipients

Tuesday, May 15, 2018 -
12:00pm to 3:00pm

Life Sciences Laboratories (LSL)

Please register by May 11.

Planning on applying for an NSF CAREER Award this year? Have questions about how to develop a winning proposal? Join your colleagues for an interactive workshop.

In this deep dive into the CAREER program, we will hear from recent UMass CAREER recipients on the strategies they used to win their awards. Panelists have received CAREER awards from the NSF Directorates for Biological Sciences, Computer & Information Science & Engineering, Engineering, and Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences. We will then participate in an interactive Q&A webinar with members of the NSF-wide CAREER Coordinating Committee.

This is a “flipped” curriculum workshop.  It will not cover the basics of the CAREER Program. In order to get the most benefit out of the faculty panel and Q&A webinar format, we recommend you prepare by reviewing the program goals and proposal requirements materials found on the CAREER website:

You may also view a video of a live presentation about the CAREER program.  

You may submit advance questions to NSF for inclusion in the webinar by emailing them to by May 11.

Please contact Mary K. Green at or 545-8641 with questions about the workshop.
